Smartling natively supports the plural forms of QT Linguist files.



<!-- smartling.[directive_name] = [value] -->



Exact delivery depends on file type.


auto (default)
true (or yes)
false (or no)

Description Can control whether or not characters will be "escaped" into entities when delivering translations. This can be set universally for the whole file via API, or by setting the directive at the top/start of the file. The directive can also be placed inline to control the behavior of specific strings.

To use inline:
<!-- smartling.entity_escaping = false -->

<!-- smartling.entity_escaping = auto -->

For example, your translation might look like this:
Smartling HTML escaping < > & " example string4

By default, using the "auto" setting, we would assume this is HTML from the <hr> tag and it would be converted to:
Smartling HTML escaping &lt; &gt; &amp; &quot; example string4

Using smartling.entity_escaping = false would allow Smartling HTML escaping < > & " example string4 to appear as it should.
